Tunbridge Wells ground set to host three games in the next two weeks.
Preparations are well under way for Kent’s annual visit to Tunbridge Wells with early ticket sales indicating it will be as popular as ever.
Jimmy Adams’ side will be playing three games at the Nevill Ground starting next Wednesday when they take on Hampshire in a LV=County Championship Division Two, before a CB40 match against Northamptonshire on June 10, and the first t20 game against Sussex on June 12.
One new feature for this year is the introduction of a ladies day on the second day of the four day match against Hampshire next Thursday.
Kent chief executive Jamie Clifford said: “It’s looking really good, it’s a fairly well worn routine.
“I would say it’s the most beautiful cricket festival in the world, we are hoping the rhododendrons will be out.”
He said ticket sales have looked promising and could be close to a sell out for the t20 tie with county neighbours Sussex on June 12.
“Tunbridge Wells week is always a bit of a marker as the start of the season in terms of attendances,” he said.
“The t20 sold out last year, and we hope to get that again.
“It falls really nicely with the kids on holiday, so we get lots of families coming down.
“I cannot speak highly enough of it, it’s a fantastic feel-good week.”
